About This Item

2014. ISBN-13: 9781584775737; ISBN-10: 1584775734. The First World War and International Law Baty, T., and J.H. Morgan. War: Its Conduct and Legal Results. Originally published: London: John Murray, 1915. xxviii, [ii], 578 pp. Reprinted 2005, 2014 by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd. ISBN-13: 9781584775737. ISBN-10: 1584775734. Hardcover. New. $39.95 * The authors argue that the First World War effectively ended the existing system of international law, a system that was already in decline due to the growing economic and political interdependence of states. These changes have created a new set of problems that will provide the basis of a new system of international law when the war ends. In addition to supplying an intellectual framework for this new system, Baty and Morgan address practical topics, such as international arbitration, and more abstract issues, such as the clash between nationalism and cosmopolitanism. "[V]ery good reading....It is a thoughtful book." --T.S.W., Yale Law Journal 19:313-314. * Thomas Baty [1868-1954], an English lawyer, traitor and transgender pioneer, was one of the most intriguing individuals in the field of twentieth-century international law. A leading expert and prolific scholar who taught at Oxford University and was a joint secretary of the International Law Association, he secured his reputation with the publication of this work and earlier, International Law (1909). At the same time he lived a parallel private life as Irene Clyde and helped to found, and was the editor of, Urania, the pioneering anti-gender magazine of the 1900s. In 1916 he became a legal advisor to the Japanese foreign ministry. His legal opinion did much to "justify" Japan's invasion of Manchuria in 1931. At the outbreak of war in 1939 he chose to remain in Japan and continued to advise the government even after Pearl Harbor and Japan's declaration of war against the U.S. and Britain. His last legal paper appeared in the English-language journal Contemporary Japan in 1944. J.H. MORGAN [1876-1955] was a Liberal candidate for Parliament in 1910. A legal editor of the Encyclopedia Britannica (14th edition), he was professor of constitutional law at the University of London and legal adviser to the War Crimes Commission at Nuremberg from 1947 to 1949.
